What’s In Your CD Player?

We asked Jay Edwards, Host, Jazz of Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, “What’s in Your CD Player?”

When did you first fall in love with music? I was about 9 or 10 years old and being raised in Catholic School in Harlem. Unfortunately, I was also failing 5th grade math, so my mother sent me to my aunt to be tutored.  My aunt was a jazz lover.  Each day, she would give me a snack, put on some jazz music and then start tutoring.  After the session, I would ask her about the artist.  She played Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald…all the greats.  It was then that I realized that I was in love with music.

What was the first album you purchased? That same year, I saved my money and bought Kind of Blue by Miles Davis.
And what’s in your CD Player right now? Midnight Jazz Affair by Edy Martinez.  He is a Columbian-born composer,
arranger and pianist and he just recently moved to Atlanta from New York City.  When I hear his music, I think of the artists like Tito Puente, Chico O’Farrill or the big Latin band leaders.
